    Win 7 is not a supported operating system. The support page lists win10 64bit as the only supported operating system. Up to you IF you want to try however I would really, really just install win10.

    I checked the specs on that board and you do have usb 2 ports so it may be possible to install win7 [boards with only usb3 need drivers slipstreamed into an install disk] The intel download center does have chipset drivers, the realtek page would have a sound driver and the intel center has a lan driver.

    If you want to do a lot of searching for drivers, you may be able to make it work however [if it were me] I would just install 10 and be done.

    I already gave it to you. You need to find the drivers and do the install. I have posted where you find the drivers. Again IMO this is a BAD idea; while it may work, it will never work well. Hardware and software are designed to work together. Software from one era does not work well with hardware from a different era.

    The only other thing you will probably need to do is to turn OFF or disable secure boot in the bios. Read your motherboard manual to see where this option is located.

    It is there because I found it last night. You need to search for h310 chipset or inf driver.

    One other item. Do not attempt to install win7 on a nvme type drive; not going to happen unless you have a very high level of skill. Use either a mech hd or a regular ssd.

    M.2 nvme drive.
    Just an observation however if you are asking questions like the above, you are going to have to do a LOT more reading and studying before attempting to install an unsupported operating system. Installing an operating system that is not supported requires a higher level of skill than simply booting from a win10 usb and letting setup do everything.
